The income guidelines have been changed, which means more Alabama residents could now be eligible for help under the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) nutrition program.

According to information from AL.com, the new guidelines began June 1, and are designed to determine if a person can participate in the WIC program.

WIC was created to assist women or a parent or guardian of a child younger than 5 years of age. The program provides milk, eggs, cheese, juice, cereal, whole grain bread or brown rice, beans or peanut butter, fresh fruits, vegetables, and more.

Guidelines to receive assistance from WIC are based on the gross income before taxes of applicants. The new income guidelines are:
